Moving Confluence database from one server to another

20 Feb

In order for move the MS SQL database for Confluence (same OS), I did the following:

  1. Shutdown application/service Confluence
  2. Backup ms sql Confluence database
  3. Restore the backup to another MS SQL server
  4. Check that the “confluence” user for the database can log into the database (very often you have to recreate the user with the correct password)
  5. Edit C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\Confluence\confluence.cfg.xml
    • <property name=”hibernate.connection.url”>jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://SERVERNAME:1433/confluence</property>
  6. Startup application/service Confluence
  7. If there is error – check log file C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\Confluence\logs\atlassian-confluence.log
